PSG arrives as the leader in this matchday 30 with 63 points in Ligue 1, where they will face the 7th-placed team in the local championship, who has 41 points and hopes to qualify for European competitions next season.

As the undisputed leader of Ligue 1, PSG will seek to further solidify its position at the top of the French championship, where a victory would bring it closer to clinching the title in the 2023/24 season. However, they will have to play this match without Manuel Ugarte and Lucas Hernández.

Olympique de Lyon arrives in a fairly positive phase this season. Although their start in Ligue 1 was one of the worst in the club's history, with several matches spent near relegation places, Lyon now boasts 4 victories in the last 5 matches played in Ligue 1 and sits in seventh position in the French championship, aiming to secure European competitions for the next season.

The unparalleled moment of PSG this season

On the other hand, Paris Saint-Germain arrives at an ideal moment in the season, with their qualification to the Champions League semifinals leaving them with a positive and optimal outlook to face matchday 30 of Ligue 1. However, they will be without two key players for this match: Manuel Ugarte and Lucas Hernandez, due to suspension.

It is unknown what Luis Enrique's starting XI will be, due to the extensive work and travel PSG has undergone in Spain over the past week. However, securing victory at the Parc des Princes will be crucial for the Parisians.
